Coronavirus: Three more deaths at trusts with hospitals in Surrey brings total to 983

Published by the Eagle Radio News Team at 6:30pm 9th May 2020.

It has been confirmed that a further three patients being treated at NHS trusts with hospitals in Surrey have died after testing positive for COVID-19.

Confirmed deaths relating to coronavirus at the five trusts with hospitals in the county now stand at 983.

It is not clear exactly how many of those deaths have been in Surrey, as some of the trusts also have other sites based outside of the county. NHS England only publishes figures for deaths by hospital trust.

Across England 207 more people have died in hospital after contracting the virus, bringing the total to 22,971.

In a statement NHS England said:

"A further 207 people, who tested positive for the Coronavirus (Covid-19) have died, bringing the total number of confirmed reported deaths in hospitals in England to 22,971.

"Patients were aged between 37 and 100 years old.  19 of the 207 patients (aged between 60 and 95 years old) had no known underlying health condition.  

"Their families have been informed."

Figures for those having recovered from coronavirus in the UK have not been made available.

However, the Royal Surrey County Hospital has previously said 115 COVID-19 patients there have been discharged.

In our area East Surrey Hospital had an increase of two deaths while Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust had a rise of one.

There were no new COVID-19 related deaths recorded at the Royal Surrey, Ashford and St Peter's Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust.

The totals for NHS trusts with hospitals in Surrey are as follows:

Ashford and St Peter's Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust: 145
Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust*: 244
Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust*: 303
Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust: 83
